Job Description

As a Senior Frontend Engineer you enjoy making beautiful user interfaces. You have strong opinions based on experience about which frameworks to work with and you know which mistakes to avoid.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Building scalable and highly usable frontend applications using Angular, VueJS, Backbone and vanilla js

  • Help define the most beautiful user interactions in Kenya

  • Solve (many) real problems using tech

  • Teach junior engineers

  • Support in taking correct technology decisions


Successful candidates will have all or most of these qualifications:

  • Show us why they are suited for this position, rather than just tell us

  • Fluent English

  • Deeply experienced in Javascript on server and client

    • Good understanding of ES6

  • Some experience with TypeScript

  • Experience with unit testing and continuous integration

  • Deep knowledge of web technologies (REST/HTTP, web sockets, ...)

  • Good understanding of popular programming paradigms (e.g. object orientation, functional programming, ...)

  • Able to fit into a fun and outgoing work environment

  • Significant work experience and/or relevant educational background
